Cookie Dough Campaign Starts Today!

Our Home and School Cookie Dough Fundraiser starts today.  Students received a package to take home with all the details.  This fundraiser was a great success last year.  The product was delicious and easy to sell. Our students loved the prizes (one for every tub sold).

Orders are due by Monday, February 5th.  Orders can be picked up on March 1st at Parent-Teacher Interviews.

100 Items of Food Needed!

Mrs. Connolly’s Grade 1 class is collecting non-perishable food items for the Summerside Food Bank and they are asking for help from the Greenfield School community!

They are wanting to collect 100 hundred items of food to take to the Food Bank in celebration of the 100th day of school.  The 100th day of school happens later in February and Mrs. C’s class hopes to reach their goal by then.

Any student who wishes to help can take food items to Mrs. Connolly’s classroom anytime between now and the 100th Day of School.

Thank you so much for your help with this project!

January Notes

Here are a few notes on what is happening in January:

  • Gymnastics in the Gym – School team tryouts for gymnastics are beginning. Students in Grades 3, 4, 5 and 6 who are interested in trying out should come prepared every day to participate in the tryouts.  There is also a gymnastics program for physical education classes.  On gymnastics days, students will be doing gymnastics in bare feet unless parents want to sent along proper slippers which are welcome.
  • There is a Home and School Meeting scheduled for Tuesday, January 16th at 6:30.  All parents are welcome to attend and win a ice cream party for your child’s class!
  • January 18th is a Professional Learning Day.  There is no school on this day.
  • Refunds were made to HotLunches accounts for January 4th and 5th as there was no school on these days.  If you do not have a refund but should have, please contact the office.  Refunds were made on paid orders only.
  • Please see that your children are dressed for the cold weather, which we are certainly having in the past couple of weeks.  Unless the wind chill is -20 or over, students will be going outdoors at recess.  We have many students who do not have clothing (hats, mittens, snow pants, jackets) that is warm enough for the cold weather.  We do keep some extras in the office but we are having a hard time keeping up with demand.  It would be very helpful if parents could check to see that children have what they need before they leave in the morning.

Reminder – January 18th – School Goals Day – No School

A reminder to our parents that January 18th is a Professional Learning Day for the Three Oaks Family of Schools.  Our students do not have school on this day, although they will have school on January 31st when the rest of the school system will be having a Professional Learning/Semester Turn Around Day.

This change is to accommodate the school calendar adjustments made for Three Oaks High School and the major construction that is underway.

Please call the school office if you have any questions about this change.
